• The Rangers won Friday night for the first time this season without drawing a walk offensively.

• Jurickson Profar hit a home run Friday night while batting ninth and being used at designated hitter. It's only the third time in club history that the designated hitter has hit a home run from the ninth spot in the order. Dave Hostetler did it in 1983 and Taylor Teagarden in 2008.

• Friday night was also the fifth time this season the Rangers have won even though their starter pitched four innings or fewer.
